Daughter distraught over cemetery sweep Charla Huber News staff

Piles of wreaths, artificial flowers, sculptures and trinkets brought Shawna Goddard to tears. “When I just saw the trinkets and statues and flowers, it just broke my heart,” she said sobbing. “It’s just gut wrenching.” Throughout the Hatley Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Colwood, tokens and wreaths left on tombstones were removed by cemetery staff. The piles of mementos upset Goddard, because of the sentimental value of items such as the coffee mug and a child’s Hot Wheels car that now sit beside the road. Among the piles was the wrought iron sculpture Goddard placed on her fathers grave nearly six years ago. David Robert William Goddard was buried there in 2005 and his plot is visible from the road. Goddard noticed the sculpture missing and drove in to the cemetery where she saw the piles. She said the statue has never moved. Bruce Simpson, cemetery manager, said spring cleanup is an annual occurrence. “We allow artificial flowers from November to March and then after that it is just real flowers,” he explained, adding they are left in piles for loved ones to collect. Each year Simpson said he receives one or two phone calls from angry people about this, he said next year he will try and provide the families more notice. The cleanup is to allow the grounds workers to cut the grass and maintain the cemetery grounds. Simpson said it is standard protocol in the 41 cemeteries across Canada that the company runs. “It’s written in out rules and regulations and on the contract people sign,” he explained. “I am concerned for the people who don’t know this is happening,” Goddard said. “When someone dies you don’t read the fine print.” The items will be left out until the end of March for people to collect. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

Langford Minor Fastball, volunteers and the city are teaming up to upgrade Centennial park. Improvements to the baseball fields will cost about $90,000 for the supplies and the fastball association is supplying the labour. The city hasn’t approved the funds yet, but is in the process said Mike Leskiw, manager of Langford parks and recreation. Only some of the improvements will occur before ball season starts in April. Within the month additional fencing and netting will be added to diamonds one and two in an effort to keep foul balls from landing in neighbouring yards or the stands. Additional fencing will also be added to the back of the field to help shield the concession and washrooms from balls as well. At the end of the season fastball volunteers plan to replace the gravel in the infield. “Right now (the surface) is too hard,” said John Musgrave, Langford minor ball president, explaining improvements haven’t been done to the park in the past 15 years. Once the infield has been replaced it will need to settle for a couple months before it is used. “Otherwise it’d be like running

Because most of the labour will be covered by volunteers, Musgrave said he hopes to save enough to pay for the batting cages to be covered so players could use them year round. “When it rains the balls won’t go through a pitching machine,” said Wendy Parker, registrar of the association.

Homeward bound HMCS Regina in home waters Thursday after eight eventful months Don Descoteau News staff

HMCS Regina is in the homestretch of a long deployment to the Arabian Sea and crew members are excited to be that much closer to Esquimalt Harbour. Between participating in the multinational counter-terrorism Operation ARTEMIS, undertaking training exercises and engaging in outreach efforts in various ports of call, it has been an eventful eight months, said the ship’s commanding officer, Cmdr. Jason Boyd. “Pulling in the harbour that morning on the 14th, there will be a real sense of satisfaction when we get home,” he said during a stopover in Hawaii. But even after accomplishing such things as interrupting an illicit drug shipment in January and helping rescue the crew of a stranded Yemeni fishing boat in October, the yearning to get home is strong. “It’s such a long transit home in the Pacific Ocean,” Boyd said.

“When we dropped out of (the mission) and you’re finally pointing east and heading toward home, you realize there’s still 50 days in front of you before you get there. Things tend to dip a little in terms of spirits and morale. But Hawaii is a very familiar stop for our sailors, with lots of familiar landmarks. We know it means we’re not far from home.” Regina and ships from the 26 other partner nations in Operation ARTEMIS operated under a different mandate than the UN Security Council resolution that followed 9-11, Boyd said. Therefore upon boarding a suspected drug smuggling ship they would seize narcotics and let individuals go free. When Regina disrupted the smuggler ship – the vessel was tracked using a state-of-the-art unmanned aerial vehicle – the culprits fled and dropped most of the cargo over the side. An estimated 450 kilograms of narcotics sank to the bottom of the sea. The UAV boosted the ship’s reconnaissance capability, Boyd

It made us a big player and brought a lot of credibility to our navy.” In all, Regina crew boarded 19 vessels, mostly just to check

nationality of those on board, he said. After the ship reaches port on Thursday, it will enter a period of technical maintenance to bring the frigate back up to ship-shape. Boyd is due to take over the

Developer proposes multi-use sewage treatment facility Esquimalt mayor brings proposal to CRD committees Daniel Palmer News staff

The future site of the Capital Regional District’s wastewater treatment facility has the potential to become a world-class environmental and sustainable energy destination, says one local company. Erik Lindquist, president of

Titus Infrastructure Services, put a proposal forward to Esquimalt council at a closed meeting Monday that calls for a 650,000-sq.-ft. mixed-use facility at McLoughlin Point. The proposal envisions building a 100,000-sq.-ft. wastewater treatment and resource recovery plant, in addition to commercial and residential space. “It’s the most expensive piece of property on the south Island and the CRD wants to turn it into a disposal site,” said Lindquist, whose company specializes in heat and

resource recovery projects. Mayor Barb Desjardins forwarded the proposal to the CRD board and core area liquid waste management committee for consideration at their March 13 meetings. “We can’t officially endorse or reject this proposal, but we’re really interested in some of the concepts and ideas, and we want to encourage the CRD to really look at this sort of project going forward,” she said. Desjardins admitted “one or two” similar tertiary treatment

facilities would be needed throughout Greater Victoria, which could prove a hard sell to CRD directors. “The ultimate goal is resource recovery, but also waste management, so that (municipalities) wouldn’t have to send waste to a central facility,” she said. Similar projects are already underway at Westhills in Langford and the Capital City Centre Centre development in Colwood, Lindquist said. “This is going back to where we were in the process before we

turned around and made, in my opinion, the wrong turn,” Desjardins said. The CRD is in the planning stages of a $782-million secondary sewage treatment project. Two-thirds of the funding will come from the provincial and federal governments, but any cost overruns will fall on CRD homeowners. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Cut it out, Coulier is coming

City of Langford NOTICE OF ROAD CLOSURE

Charla Huber News staff

Due to construction works related to the Leigh Road Interchange project McCallum Road from Florence Lake Road to North of The Trans Canada Highway will be closed to Traf¿c from March 18, 2013 to March 22, 2013 from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm. Residents with in the road closure area will be accommodated.

Dave Coulier hopes for a full house at the Comedy Nights at the Goose show this month in Langford. “If people want to bring their boss to my show, they are not going to get embarrassed. But, even though I do a clean show I can’t vouch for the comedians that open for me,” he said. When Coulier performs at the Galloping Goose Grille he said his show will be full of his impersonations, his harmonica playing, and observational humour he draws from his own life. “If I don’t do Bullwinkle or Popeye people come up to me after the show and complain. My standup is always evolving,” said Coulier, adding he has also included more modern characters in his show including SpongeBob SquarePants. After decades of standup, Coulier admits to being heckled hundreds of time, but said he just ignores it and just continues the show. “There is a reason why the comedian is the one standing with the microphone,” Coulier said. While he likes to run a clean show, Coulier said he grew up watching the raunchy comedy acts of Richard Pryor. He also watched clean comedy on the Johnny Carson show. Coulier

Dave Coulier first appeared on the show in 1984. “It was the most terrifying roller coaster ride of my life,” he said of his experience on The Tonight Show. Having a foul-language free show isn’t something he prides himself with, “It’s just who I am.” “When I was 19 I met Jay Leno at the Comedy Store. He said ‘You are funny and very clean. When you have a clean show you can work anywhere,’” said Coulier in his best Jay Leno voice. Coulier is best known for his eight seasons on the sitcom Full House where he played comedian Joey Gladstone. The show ended in 1995 and since then he has been on two reality shows

Skating with Celebrities and The Surreal Life. “Being on reality shows is just uncomfortable,” he said. When he was on The Surreal Life he shared a house with celebrities included Jordan Knight from New Kids on the Block and Flava Flav from Public Enemy. “I still talk to Flava Flav sometimes, he texts me … he’s just a sweetheart,” said Coulier. It’s been 15 years since Coulier has been to Vancouver Island. His last time was to play a charity hockey game. “If you’ve seen me play hockey, it’s pretty much just comedy too,” jokes the comedian in a phone interview from his home in Los Angeles. Coulier’s mother is from New Brunswick and he grew up in Detroit, but his passion for hockey began when he first laced his skates at five years old. “It felt like I was from Canada because every weekend I would drive with my dad to Southern Ontario for hockey games,” he said. Coulier still plays hockey every Sunday in a pick-up league. “But now it’s mostly just for the beer,” he admits. Comedy Nights at the Goose is hosting Coulier’s show March 24 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at the Galloping Goose Grille at 1097 Langford Parkway. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

ith cloth gloves and a gentle touch, Royal Roads University is carefully preparing a collection of blueprints of Hatley Castle to be shipped to Ottawa’s National Gallery of Canada for an exhibit. The collection consists of three copies of blueprints of the east, west and water elevation of Hatley Castle and an original blueprint for the Italian garden, which celKyle Wells ebrates its 100th anniversary Reporting this year. All of the documents will be displayed at the National Gallery in Ottawa from Oct. 25 through to Jan. 26, 2014 as a part of its Artists, Architects, Artisans: Canadian Art 18901918 display. “This fits really nicely in that timeframe,” RRU

archivist Caroline Posynick said. “(It’s) considered to be an important time in Canadian history, a beautiful time in architecture.” Canadian architect Samuel Maclure designed the castle starting in 1906 for then Lieutenant Governor James Dunsmuir. Construction began in 1908 and finished 18 months later. Boston-based landscape architect firm Brett and Hall designed the garden, which has since been a showcase for the castle. “Dunsmuir wanted something special with the garden,” Posynick said. “Dunsmuir was keen to show his wealth, I suppose, and he was very adamant about getting the best of the best.” The exact years of the copies are not known, but Posynick believes they are also well dated, potentially from the early 1910s. “It’s wonderful to have this here but to me it’s just as important to give people access and to share that,” Posynick said, “because otherwise it’s just a treasure trove.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

The latest round of construction on the Malahat, including adding more barriers, started last week and is scheduled to be complete by the end of June.

Malahat upgrades to finish for July After putting $8 million dollars into Malahat Drive the work is on the homestretch, announced the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. Right now a contractor is installing concrete barriers at four locations. These additions will span a total of 2.6 kilometres. Once installed 5.4, kilometres of the Malahat will have the barriers in place. Lighting, signage and road markings are also a part of the project. The final work is expected to be complete by the end of June. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

Interchange project closes roads Kyle Wells

LANGFORD COUNCIL

News staff

IN BRIEF Langford council approved road closures for the Leigh Road Interchange project. For the week of March 18 to March 22, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., Spencer and McCallum Rd. (formerly Brock Ave.) will be closed to traffic. The closures allow for sewer service installations. Access to the Shell gas station will remain open off and onto the Trans Canada Highway, but Spencer road will be closed beyond that. Residents who live on those roads will be able to get through intermittently.

On May 18 Langford will host a memorial ride by the North American Motor Officers Association as a part of its annual conference being held at this year at Western Speedway. The association is a collection of police motorcycle officers from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alberta and B.C. Approximately 120 to 150 motorcycle-riding police officers will ride from the speedway to Royal Roads University in honour of fallen police officers killed during 2012. The ride will start at 12 p.m. Local police will marshall the traffic route and there is expected to be minimal disruptions.

Honouring the mayor At the Monday, March 4 council meeting the Federation of Canadian Municipalities presented Langford Mayor Stew Young with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal in recognition of his 20 years of service as an elected official.

Little black spots, bugs and spider webs, … Optometrists hear these descriptions of floaters on a daily basis. What are floaters? The majority of the eyeball is filled with a jellylike substance known as vitreous. The vitreous is surrounded by the retina, the thin layer of the eye which contains the light receptor cells. The retina is like the film of a camera and is essential for sight. The vitreous is attached to the retina at a number of points within the eye. As we age the vitreous tends to condense, shrink and become less transparent. Little globs of dense gel floating around cast small shadows on the back of the eye. Those shadows are what we perceive as floaters. Over time all of us will have some of these floaters. However, not all floaters are this innocent. As the vitreous shrinks it tugs at the retina. This tugging can occasionally tear the retina and subsequently cause a retinal detachment. When a detachment occurs, vision can only be saved by prompt medical intervention to repair and reattach the retina. If you experience a sudden onset of new floaters, flashes of light, a shadow or curtain in your vision, or a sudden decrease in your vision, seek advice immediately. Don’t wait a few days to see if the symptoms decrease. If the shadow or curtain occurs on a weekend, go to Emergency. Retinal detachment is painless but serious. Your optometrist can help distinguish between normal vitreous changes and situations which require immediate referral to a medical specialist. Routine eye examinations are a great way to maintain good eye health.

Parking priorities Council is expected to adopt amendments to its zoning bylaw which will change some of the rules surrounding off-street parking spaces for new buildings.

Burning on Rocky Point last week can be attributed to the Department of National Defence. They burned piles of gorse and Scotch broom and expected to finish Friday, weather permitting.

Riding to remember

The amendments will put priority on having more parking spots required for buildings outside of the downtown core, and fewer for buildings in the downtown core. “We’re trying to right-size the parking to what we’ve seen as the true demand,” said Matthew Baldwin, director of planning. “The reason for a lower number in the core is because there’s more opportunity living a transit lifestyle.” A new provision will also allow a certain number of vehicle spaces to be reduced in exchange for an increased number of spaces for bicycles. The amendment has gone through public hearing and is expected to be adopted at council on Monday, March 18. news@goldstreamgazette.com

OUR VIEW

No guarantees of lower bills With the return to a combination of a sevenper-cent provincial sales tax and five-per-cent federal goods and services tax April 1, the harmonized sales tax experiment will come to an end in B.C. Taxpayers shouldn’t count on having more money left over at the end of the month, however, as the changes made by the province in the wake of the initial HST – tax credits for lower-income families and seniors among them – will also come to an end. There will nonetheless be good news for consumers in certain sectors. Butchart Gardens food and beverage manager Bob Parrotta, who serves as the Victoria branch chair for the B.C. Restaurant and Foodservices Association, insists that patrons will see a reduction on their bills after the PST is reinstated, with the net result being a four to five-per-cent increase in sales. If that materializes, and there’s no guarantee it will, it could create jobs and benefit other related businesses. Other consumers, such as those planning to purchase a brand new home or buying a new bike, may see large savings in one transaction. The HST was supposed to provide a less complicated tax regime for the sale of goods and services and eliminate exemptions and hidden taxes created under the PST/GST system. There were still loopholes. For example, a person buying a donut at Tim Horton’s would pay tax on their purchase, while the same donut at a grocery store would not be taxed, since it was considered a grocery item. We hope the work the province has done on reforming the PST, since the public voted the HST out with a 55-per-cent majority, makes B.C.’s tax system more streamlined. Regardless, the public can’t expect things to be perfect under a system previously found to be inefficient and unfair, not to mention unwieldy for business. At the very least, we fully expect businesses that complained loudest about the HST to put their money where their mouth is and prove to customers they are saving money under PST/ GST.

change with an NDP government. Asked last week if he would stage an apology for the head tax, Dix delivered a well-rehearsed history lesson that made it clear he is anxious to do so. Welcome to politics in an urbanized, globalized media culture. It’s more important to put on a show than to do the right thing. Hospitals are announced three times before they’re built, then announced again when they are staffed. Politics is a lucrative career. Former B.C. Liberal MLA Lorne Mayencourt is one of the additional “outreach” staff hand-picked by Clark. The B.C. Liberals retort that the NDP caucus has a similar staffer named Gabriel Yiu, who has taken three leaves of absence to run for MLA, and is in practical terms a professional NDP candidate. Yiu is running for a fourth time in Vancouver-Fraserview, having been defeated in 2009 by former West Vancouver police chief Kash Heed. That campaign was notorious for anonymous Chineselanguage pamphlets claiming the NDP favours legalizing drugs and imposing a “death tax” on inheritance. This latest scandal might produce meaningful reform. But the misuse of public money to further the interests of political parties is deeply entrenched.

The City of Langford has a large, community garden plot at Willing Park in the Happy Valley area. The garden was operated by volunteers for years, but did not have access to water and was not served by public transit. Now the park is surrounded by new

developments that probably have connecting bus service and a water main close by. The garden area is deer fenced but is becoming overgrown with grasses and invasive species. A small group of locals tried to resurrect the garden in 2010, but there were not enough committed people to get it going again. The growing conditions at Willing Park Community Garden are excellent so hopefully the Pilgrim gardeners could go there. Ron Rayner Langford

OPINION

Modern electronics enable deeper mind-to-mind talk Duke University scientists have connected the brains of two rats by wire. So Brian Dodson reported in Gizmag. The rat-pairs scored 65 to 70 per cent in earning rewards – drops of water – for correctly conveying flashing-light and dooropening information to one another. Smart rats may point the way toward achieving stronger co-ordinative human brainpower through linking brains together by wireless. This sounds scary, but stronger brainpower arguably could help us make the world safer. The researchers are now trying to interconnect several rats. Could a “brain-net” become a super-brain? Neurobiologist Miguel Nicolilis and colleagues hope to find out. Could an array of biological brains, networked together with a high-performance computer, outshine individual humans and

Priest-scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was tuned in to this idea before the spread of computers. He postulated three levels of being: geosphere, biosphere and noosphere – the realm of thought. The enquiry raises echoes ranging from global and United Nations, to local and Capital Regional District. The optimistic view is that people have

started to mobilize in quiet strength against such neglected dangers as the asteroid strike that wiped out the dinosaurs, 65 million years ago. Another strike will happen again, unless action is taken to find the undiscovered space-rocks and divert them – maybe with nuclear pushers or lasers. Currently only $3 million a year is invested in asteroid research – one half of one per cent of the budget for cleansing polluted sites in the U.S.A. But the balance may change as the result of a meteor hit in Russia and an asteroid near-miss, Feb. 15. Scientific peoplewatchers doubt that the popular mindset can be changed by deliberate, calculated action – action to convince us we must shield Earth from remotely foreseen asteroids, for example. Most of us don’t

care. But modern electronics have enabled faster, deeper mindto-mind talk than ever before. So the old rules may be out of date. Flexible, co-ordinated strategies may evolve, beyond the scope of orthodox government or commerce, to reduce the harm or danger of asteroid hits, economic breakdown, nuclear war, ethno-linguistic hatred, global warming, destruction of fish and forests, road-traffic gridlock, drug addiction, dementia, violent crime and mass starvation. I like to guess that such world-saving plans are already taking shape, but what do I know? Nothing. I draw some pleasure from the notion of talk between species – like human to rat, guinea pig, goldfish or chimpanzee. Maybe future generations of kids will enjoy conversations with their pets.

Song and dance keep Irish spirit alive Will Millar dinner theatre celebrates traditional culture Kyle Wells News staff

There are few things more near and dear to the hearts of the Irish than music, stories and good company. All three of these essential elements will be at the forefront of Irish Rover Will Millar’s live dinner theatre show Ireland: Where the Song and Dance Began, starting Friday, March 15 at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel, 1175 Beach Dr., and running Friday and Saturday nights until April 20. Joining Millar on stage will be singer-songwriter Mary Murphy, guitarist Paul Keim, fiddler Daniel Lapp, Riverdance dancer Joel Hanna and singer Chuck McCandless. Along with a couple of Irish Rovers classics, the group will be singing more traditional Irish songs, telling stories, reading poems, dancing and highlighting the history of Ireland through

that may not exist anymore in Ireland,” Millar said, “But it exists in

people’s imaginations of what Ireland might be.” Growing up in Ballymena in Northern Ireland, Millar said he never understood how widely celebrated St. Patrick’s Day is until he came to North America. “I never saw St. Patrick’s Day when I grew up in Ireland,” Millar said. “It was a day that you went to church.” The Irish Rovers toured the world for more than 30 years, primarily due to the popularity of The Unicorn song. Millar left the band in 1995 and now lives in Maple Bay. Millar has been performing versions of this show for more than a decade now, primarily through New Zealand and Australia. Inspiration came from the history of Irish song and storytelling, something which Millar said has helped the Irish find an identity in the world and overcome prejudice. “I believe that the Irish were such a tormented race over the generations,” Millar said. “I do believe that the music kept them going. I believe it was their spiritual identity. … They could be in dire straits but an Irish jig or an

Irish reel would get them up dancing, get the blood going and give them an identity.” The Oak Bay Beach Hotel hosts dinner theatre in its David Foster Foundation Theatre. The meal will be a three-course traditional Irish dinner. Along with the dinner theatre, a selection of Millar’s paintings will be on display at the hotel. “Although it’s a very elegant environment, it’s a very relaxed environment,” said hotel owner Kevin Walker. “It’s not unlike a kitchen party on the east coast or a ceilidh.” The show is suitable for all audiences A contest is also being held to give away a seven-day all expenses paid trip to Ireland. All guests of the dinner theatre will be entered into the draw, which will be held at the end of the show’s run. The performance runs every Friday and Saturday starting Friday, March 15 until Saturday, April 20. Tickets are $109 per person, plus taxes, including the meal and show.

Nick Sepi, left, Alan Penty, Toshik Bukowiecki and Karen Brelsford in a scene from the madcap thriller The 39 Steps.

The Langham Court Theatre puts a hilarious spin on a classic mystery as it takes on a farcical adaptation of The 39 Steps, bringing to stage more than 100 roles played by four actors. This wild adaptation from the novel by John Buchan and the movie by Alfred Hitchcock brims with references to other classic Hitchcock headliners such as Psycho, Vertigo and North by Northwest, allowing for a maximum amount of laughs during its run until March 23. During the show, the audience witnesses actors Alan Penty, Karen Brelsford, Nick Sepi and Toshik Bukowiecki play everything from hairy-legged cross-dressers to overly mysterious film-noir women – sometimes within seconds of each other. Directed by Keith Digby and Cynthia Pronick, the set was designed by Bill Adams, his finalé as head scenic carpenter after 15 years. Tickets are $21 for adults, $19 for students/seniors and are available at langhamtheatre.ca. llavin@vicnews.com

April 1 rate hikes

Black Press

Coastal ferry users are braced for reduced sailings on some underused routes, and many are open to cable ferries, barges, passenger-only vessels or even bridges where practical to contain rising costs. Transportation Minister Mary Polak released the government’s consultation report Tuesday on ways to save $26 million on operations by 2016. That was the target set by B.C. Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee. About 4,000 people took part in the consultation, with more than half saying they agree with the need to reduce costs. When the government announced the service review last year, it added an extra $20 million to the subsidy for the service over four years, bringing the total taxpayer subsidy to about $180 million per year. Polak said specific service cuts won’t be made public until June 30 at the earliest, and the government may extend that deadline after reviewing the consultation results with B.C. Ferries. She denied that the timing was chosen to push the unpopular move past the May 14 election. “If the idea was to stay away from discussion of potential cuts during an election period, I daresay we would not have embarked on the consul-

B.C. Ferries confirmed on Wednesday that it plans to hike ferry rates on April 1, 2013. Prices for vehicle and passenger fares are going up an average of 4.1 per cent. Hikes are also on assured loading tickets and reservations made less than a week in advance. Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen and other major routes: Passenger - $14.85 to $15.50 Vehicle - $49.25 to $51.50

tation,� Polak said. “We were very up-front in putting out the utilization numbers so people can see where the challenges were and where there will likely be cuts.� Last year B.C. Ferries cut sailings on the Duke Point-Nanaimo run, which was losing an average of $50 per vehicle carried. B.C. Ferries CEO Mike Corrigan said the corporation expected to cut at least 100 sailings on its major Vancouver Island routes, mostly runs late in the evenings. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

SPORTS Bronze for Breakers Oak Bay third at hoops provincials Travis Paterson News staff

Evan Seal/Black Press

Oak Bay Breakers forward Danielle Cavelti attempts a shot against Burnaby South Defenders at the B.C. High School AAA Girls Basketball Championships in Langley.

No team enters a tournament to finish third, which makes the Oak Bay Breakers bounce-back effort at the AAA high school girls provincial basketball championships in Langley all the better. The Breakers suffered a decisive 58-32 loss in the semifinals to eventual champions South Kamloops on Friday. Chloe Campbell scored 13 points in the loss. It was a tough loss which the Breakers shook off with a 53-50 win over the Maple Ridge Ramblers in the thirdplace game on Saturday. Grade 10 star Lauren Yearwood led the way with 16 points and Campbell put up another 13. Yearwood also blocked five shots in the win. The Claremont Spartans went 1-4, finishing 15th.

Spartans Haley Cabral and Marissa Dheenshaw led the AAA girls tourney in steals with a combined 34, 18 by Cabral and 16 by Dheenshaw. Abbey Piazza paced the St. Mikes Blue Jags to the top-eight bracket of the AA girls championships with a 36-point effort in their opening round win over St. Thomas More 65-50. But the Blue Jags slipped to eighth as St. Thomas Aquinas held Piazza to nine points in the Blue Jags second game, a 53-32 loss, followed by a 48-27 loss to York House and 58-49 loss to Sa-Hali. Piazza was named to the allstar team. The Lambrick Park Lions and St. Mikes Blue Jags finished fourth and fifth, respectively, at the AA boys provincials. Lambrick’s Matt Neufeld was named a first team all-star and Brendan Somers a second team all-star. St. Mikes’ Georgios Ikonomou was named the top defensive player, and Mark Yorath to a second team all-star. sports@vicnews.com

Cougars advance to VIJHL final Cougars await winner of Bucs, Glacier Kings Travis Paterson News staff

Sam Rice scored on the winning goal on the power play to make it 3-2 as the Victoria Cougars eliminated the Saanich Braves from the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League playoffs with a 5-2 win, Sunday at Archie Browning Sports Centre. The Cougars now await the winner of the North final for VIJHL championship. As of Monday the Nanaimo Buccaneers led the Comox Valley Glacier Kings two games to one. The Cougars were slapped with the game’s first six penalties on Sunday but stayed the course to capture the South division title. “We wanted to play our game, not worry about what they did and send everything towards the net and it worked out for us,” said Cougars assistant captain Graham Zagrodney. “We didn’t draw as many penalties as we usually do but we still found a way to win.” It’s the second-straight trip to the Island final for Zagrodney, a trade deadline acquisition last year who hopes to lift the Brent Patterson Memorial Trophy again. Zagrodney picked up six points against the Braves, including two assists on Sunday, and leads all defencemen in playoff

The Braves finally capitalized on their sixth power play on Sunday to make it 1-0 on a goal by Josh McGladery. The next power play went to the Cougars, however, and the nation’s top ranked junior B team made no mistake as Dane Feeney scored his ninth of the playoffs. Feeney ended the game with three points and leads all playoff scorers with 26. Mark Walton, Rice, and Brody Coulter

also scored for the Cougars. McGladery scored both Braves’ goals. It’s the end of an injuryplagued season for the Braves. “It definitely hurts to lose the Travis Paterson/News staff top forward in the league in the Braves goalie Tanner McGaw. first 45 seconds of playoffs,” said goalie Tanner McGaw of the Braves captain, Ty Jones. “To battle through playoffs without your top player against a healthy (Cougars) team, it’s hard to compete. Injuries happen, it’s just unfortunate they had to happen to us.” McGaw suffered a calf injury that kept him from Game 4 on Friday. The VIJHL goalie of then picked up a dislocated finger in the waning minutes of Game 5. The calf couldn’t keep McGaw from trying one last time to finish what he started as a 16-year-old call-up in 2009, when he stole two wins in the opening round of the playoffs from the Cougars. That season McGaw and current Cougars starter Evan Roch were a goaltending tandem on the Island finalist Saanich midget AA Braves. Full story online at vicnews.com. sports@vicnews.com

Two-time CIS volleyball MVP Shanice Marcelle of Saanich recently ended her UBC Thunderbirds career with a fifth-straight CIS title.

MVP to go pro Spectrum grad ends CIS volleyball career Travis Paterson News staff

Next stop, Winnipeg. It’s not Victoria, but it is the home of the national indoor volleyball program. And it’s the next home, albeit temporary, for the top women’s university volleyball player in Canada Shanice Marcelle, recently named MVP of the CIS for the second time. The Spectrum Community school grad is in a new frame of mind, having ended her CIS playing career with the UBC Thunderbirds with a fifth-straight national volleyball title two weeks ago. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of catching up on studies. “I (had) a midterm, group project, and quiz (last week). It’s kind of strange just being a student, I’m grateful for my time as a Thunderbird,” Marcelle said. Marcelle will finish her kinesiology degree at UBC in a few weeks and head straight to national team tryouts. She’s also open to a return to the national beach volleyball program after a three-year hiatus. Indoor or outdoor, Marcelle will be on Canadian soil for the summer months only, before moving on to a launch a pro career in Europe. “An agent will help me with that. I’m not sure where but, depending on the league, hopefully I’ll get room and board covered, and some money on top of that.” It’s another turn on the path which started when Marcelle first played volleyball as a Grade 6 student at McKenzie elementary school in Saanich. Several of her ex-Thunderbirds teammates are already in Europe playing, so Marcelle’s chances are strong. Marcelle was fourth in the Canada West in kills per set and points, sixth in hitting percentage and seventh in aces. Jessica Von Schilling (Belmont) continues to represent Greater Victoria on the T-birds. sports@vicnews.com
